Reasons Why Women Have Sex


Research conducted by Cindy Meston and David Buss, authors of “Why Women Have Sex”, revealed 200 different reasons. They interviewed 1000 women and after eliminating physical attraction, some interesting reasons where revealed.

Some of the more unusual reasons given to the researchers, where to get her husband to take out the garbage, to relieve the boredom, and to get rid of a headache. One woman said it is a spiritual experience. "It's the closest thing to God."

Then there are the reasons which most likely come to mind, such as a bargaining tool, sympathy, and because it is fun. Surprising to some was romance and passion where very low on the list of reasons.

study on why men have sex?

Men don't need a reason, just a place ...
  by: WWarrior     09/11/2009 04:45 PM     
I think that is the absolute truth in most cases.

The sympathy F**k? I did realize anyone actually fell for that one. If I had to choose it would be because I enjoy sharing the experience with my spouse and if you do it right it sure is fun!

  Cool, just thought of a great new pick-up line

How about the Arnie classic - "Come with me if you want to live ..."
  by: WWarrior     09/11/2009 06:10 PM     
  @Ben & WW  
You could also use the line "I'm just loking for some sympathy" or "My goldfish died earlier today, I could sure use someone who is sympathetic"

  @Reasons Why Women Have Sex ..  
Let me know if anyone is going to post the reasons why they *don't* want to have sex. I'll add another hard drive to my pc first so I'll have room to store that list. That'll be a doozy ...

  Don't forget the  
"here you go, now shut up" sex. I'm married to a pest.
  by: reehaw     09/11/2009 06:33 PM     
I am laughing at that one. I remember being in that situation a few times.

I also like the "hurry up the kids are going to wake up in 5 minutes when they hear the alarm sex"

@WW- I really couldn't add anything to that list. I'm always willing, sadly my back is not agreeing with my hormones much these days :-(
  by: TaraB     09/11/2009 06:46 PM     
  @ TaraB  
they make a harness and pulley system as a work around for back problems. :)
  by: snowztorm29     09/11/2009 07:15 PM     
hehe if only it were that simple. We find ways to make it work, it is just an adjustment from how much before to how little times now.

Yep I know I'm naughty LOL
  by: TaraB     09/11/2009 07:37 PM     
  @ TaraB  
I'm sorry to hear that. There has been an unforunate decrease in my household as well, but not due to any injury. My wife and I thought we could squeeze in a session of as you put it "hurry up the kids are going to wake up in 5 minutes when they hear the alarm sex". However, our 10 month old had other ideas. His crib is in our bedroom due to lack of space and we tried first thing in the AM only for he and I to lock eyes 30 seconds into the act. He stared at me, smiled and kept babbling "dada, dada, dada, mum, mum, mum" all while holding onto the side of his crib and using his mattress as a trampoline.
  by: snowztorm29     09/11/2009 09:19 PM     
Wow! Yeah I can see why there is less happening right now. Our little one used to have a sense of whenever we were in the mood for what seems a long time. Everytime we even thought about it she would wake up and need something or have a nightmare and come in the room crying.

I am really glad those days are behind us.

  You people....  
are ruining my virgin eyes!
  by: Stiks   09/11/2009 09:43 PM     

So Tara, you know what you are doing in that department then, now that's even more interesting, give me a call. ;)
  by: captainJane     09/11/2009 10:39 PM     
You know I am going to give you a call, I just didn't know I would have to get together a bunch of sex secrets too LOL!
  by: TaraB     09/11/2009 10:46 PM     
You do now love! :P Hahaha

Getting a message to you now :)Not for s though. Lol
  by: captainJane     09/11/2009 11:44 PM     
  They missed a reason.  
  by: walter3ca   09/12/2009 12:22 AM     
They left out "revenge" sex. That's when she has sex with a stranger to get even. ;)
  by: Lurker     09/13/2009 05:27 AM     
  They missed another one...  
and that reason is...

Dayron. Oh, yeah, baby. I went there.
  by: Dayron   09/14/2009 01:05 AM     
"and that reason is...
Dayron. Oh, yeah, baby. I went there."

Hey Dayron! Your buddy got on your name again when you walked away from your desk. :-p
  by: TaraB     09/14/2009 01:21 AM     
Well, thankfully that won't be happening for a while.

He made Staff Sergeant and is gone to Airman Leadership School for 6 weeks.
  by: Dayron   09/14/2009 01:27 AM     
So for a few weeks we don't get to hear about your amazing triceps. We will have to find something else to occupy our time.
  by: TaraB     09/14/2009 01:48 AM     
thanks guys, I needed a good laugh this morning.

Previously I had thought that the line "I have a headache" was used by my partners in the past as an excuse not to make love, but thanks to this article I now know that it is actually a request for sex.
  by: shaohu     09/14/2009 04:53 AM     
the obligatory "Closer" to god link....

Somebody had to do it.

  by: bbeljefe     09/14/2009 09:45 AM     
  So procreate was not on said list????  
If you hate traffic support abortions!
lol... a cynical joke if you will.
Sex is great but ladies and gents please wear condoms I really hate rush hour.
  by: sour4d20     09/16/2009 09:25 PM     
You make a vary good point and I would love to think that people would make procreation a planned and infrequent reason for having sex.

Sadly, here in the US we have a population of robots who think they must go to college, get a job, get a spouse, get a house and start puking out offspring. Not that there is anything wrong with college, jobs, spouses or houses but come on folks... study exponential population growth while you're in college. We don't need families of eight these days.

It pains me to see young people who follow that protocol as if their brains are programmed to do so even against their own will. It's no wonder we have so many broken families and unhappy marriages in this country.


  by: bbeljefe     09/17/2009 03:04 AM     
  good point bb  
from the day we're born we are bombarded with love scenarios, princes saving princesses, people falling in love, people getting married, people having kids, people doing things for true love, continuously on tv and in movies. men are cast as the masculine types, women as the feminine types, men saving women, knights in shining armor, men are strong and women are weak. i didn't typecast 1000s of movies and tv shows this way, but look at it, the woman has a problem, the man comes and fixes it, knight in shining armor scenario, they fall madly in love and live happily ever after. not all movies and tv shows, there are many strong woman roles, but there's many more of the other kind.

then in school, we are only taught to think with the whole, we are taught this is how it is, this is what happened. we are never taught to question what we are being taught, if you question what somebody teaches you you will be ridiculed. if you don't learn the facts they way they want you to learn the facts, and don't put the answers they think are right on the tests they give you, you fail. the people who don't question anything ever and answer all the questions exactly how they want you to go on to prestigious colleges and become all the politicians and lawyers, senators and supreme court judges. then they are so used to taking what people tell them as fact that they can be told anything and they will just agree, a nation run by yes-men.

so they are told by movies or by parents or by religion that they must get married and have kids, they say 'yah you're right' and do as their told like good doggies. then they realize that they hate their existence and wonder how they got into this mess, get divorced and break up homes and have to start over from scratch.

i'm not saying all marriages fail, or all marriages are unhappy ones. i'm just saying we are robots programmed to think like everyone else, but life is chaos and what works for one person won't necessarily work for you.

all the examples listed in this SN seem to fall into the 'Bargaining Tool' category. which brings to mind an old joke: what's the difference between sex with a prostitute and sex with your girlfriend/wife? sex with a prostitute costs a lot less....
  by: djskagnetti     09/21/2009 11:01 PM     
  LOL @ dj  
Here's one for ya.....
What's the difference between a slut and a bitch?

A slut will sleep with anyone and a bitch will sleep with anyone but you.
